Those ubiquitous instruments that have been the calling card of doctors for ages may soon be a thing of the past once the iStethoscope consigns it to obsolescence.
We’d like to call it a pimped-out electronic version of the good ole acoustic stethoscope, but it’s best we first give credit where it’s due. The iStethoscope app was made by Mr. Peter Bentley of University College London.
More than just a knob you stick on someone’s chest, iStethoscope utilizes the iPhone’s microphone and motion sensors to produce a reading on the display. Might we add a very accurate and data-filled reading; that’s a vast improvement over traditional stethoscope use.
Bentley’s creation has proven a smash with no less than 500 downloads a day since its release. Quick to follow up on his success a “Pro” version has already been launched and the good news is it’s dirt cheap.
Interested? If you’re a real doctor, go buy it at the iPhone App store for 99 cents.
We’re certain that somewhere out there, an old-school stethoscope is plotting revenge.
